Erstwhile governor of Sokoto state, Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko, Wednesday, said no meeting of senators discussed impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking in a statement he made available to the media Wednesday, Senator Wamakko, who is Chairman Senate Committee on Basic and Secondary Education, said a Senators meeting which held at his residence was convened towards finding amicable solution to problems that had bedeviled the upper legislative chamber and executive since inauguration last year.
“My attention was drawn to a false and malicious story published by an online newspaper that a series of meetings were held in my residence to strategize on the impeachment proceedings of President Muhammadu Buhari”, he said.
He added: “To set the records straight, a meeting was only held in my residence towards finding amicable solution to the frosty relationship between the Executive and Legislature.
“We have observed the growing disharmony between the two arms, and we resolved that finding amicable solution to the impasse will move the nation forward and give the president focus to pursue his Change Agenda.
“As a principled politician, I have no cause to scheme against the president and the party I campaigned for or the cause I believe in.
“Let me once again reiterate that we hold the president in high esteem, and we will do our best towards ensuring that there is cordial relationship and harmony between the two arms of government”.
